Motherhood has always been revered as a sacred part of the divine femininity. However, the journey of fertility and pregnancy is not always an easy one and a holistic approach may be needed.
Providing our bodies with the right environment including the right nutrition, reduction of stress, healthy exercise, and herbal supplements may assist with enhancing fertility and lead to healthier pregnancies.
Natural therapies may also assist in reducing the symptoms of medication or your need for invasive procedures. Natural therapies may complement the advice and treatment provided by your doctors, obstetricians, and gynaecologists.
According to the Fertility Society of Australia, one in six couples suffers from complications around fertility. While there are physical reasons people suffer from infertility, the mind and body are connected, and it is suggested that psychological problems can also be a contributing factor to fertility issues in some women.
Infertility issues may be treated through a range of natural and holistic treatments that focus on aligning your mind, body, and spirit and may well give you a better chance at starting a family.
It is very common for women to experience symptoms of morning sickness, muscle and joint pain, depression, headaches, nausea, anxiety, swelling of the feet, ankles and fingers, along with many other issues during pregnancy.
There are many physical and psychological causes in women experiencing these symptoms. Some women may have experienced trauma during a previous pregnancy which may in turn impact on present and future pregnancies.

Acupuncture for Fertility and Pregnancy
Acupuncture may assist with fertility by increasing the smooth flow of your vital energy (Qi) to the uterus and reproductive organs, bringing your hormones into balance, along with relieving stress which may increase your chances of falling pregnant.
Acupuncture may also assist with male infertility by increasing sperm count and quality as well as relieving stress and anxiety.
Acupuncture may further be beneficial for you once pregnant and assist to alleviate a broad range of symptoms experienced during pregnancy. Acupuncture may assist in reducing morning sickness, lower back and pelvic pain, depression, headaches, sleep issues and swelling as well as other pregnancy-related symptoms.
Acupuncture is a natural treatment where fine needles are inserted through the skin at specific points along the body’s meridian, creating a healing reaction within the body.
Moxibustion uses the same philosophy and is a similar method to Acupuncture, however, instead of using fine needles, a herb known as Mugwort is burnt near the acupuncture points on the body. The heat along with the properties of the Mugwort herb may assist with the activity of your baby and may help to turn your baby into the correct birthing position.
Visceral Manipulation for Fertility and Pregnancy
Visceral Manipulation relates to the internal organs of the body and uses gentle manual therapy that may aid your body’s ability to release restrictions that cause dysfunction such as infertility and also may release discomfort experienced during pregnancy.
Visceral Manipulation does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction but looks at the entire body to find the root source of the problem.
Before applying Visceral Manipulation techniques, our practitioner feels for altered or decreased motion within the internal organs such as liver, intestines, and kidneys, as well as for restrictive patterns throughout the body that may be impacting your infertility or pregnancy.
Our practitioner Andrew Ross has been practicing Visceral Manipulation for over 15 years. Education and empowerment are important factors of his nurturing treatments to the body, mind, and spirit holistically.
